the NEUSE YACHT RACING ASSOCIATION
invites you to sail in the
2016-2017 Winter Series
(including the Halloween Regatta)
October 29, 2016 – January 22, 2017
FLEETS AND CLASSES
Anticipated fleets are Spinnaker, Non-Spinnaker, and Cruising. Cruising fleet can be selected at the request of the registering skipper and the sailboat must adhere to the rules for a Cruising fleet boat as prescribed by the ICRC (see definition at the end of the NOR). Only Spinnaker and Non-Spinnaker fleets will be scored for the NYRA Boat of the Year Award (BOTY). As always, the Winter Series score will count double for the BOTY award. The PHRF class splits for the Spinnaker and Non-Spinnaker fleets will be as defined by the “ICRC Rules for Regional Championship Events 2016”: A<=120, 123>=B<=192 and C>=195. The goal is to race every class in a fleet together so that an overall winner for each fleet can be determined even if there is only one entrant in a class. There will be no class splits in the Cruising fleet.
Six Regular Race Days are scheduled for the NYRA Winter Series and one Makeup Race Day is scheduled. Racing will occur on the Makeup Race Day just as it does on Regular Race Days if, and only if, there have not been 8 or more races scored in the Winter Series (including the Halloween Regatta) after the completion of racing on Day 6. If, due to cancellations of any kind, only 7 or fewer races have been scored after the completion of racing on Day 6, racing will continue in the same manner on the Makeup Day.
